Yesterday was my birthday and how did I spend it? By covering a Metrolinx talk at the Toronto Board of Trade where president and CEO Bruce McCuaig announced the next phase of projects in The Big Move, their regional transit expansion master plan. If you’re from Toronto, the biggest deal was that the Downtown Relief Line, something that has been bandied about for decades (I’m not kidding) is finally on the table and will be built within the next 15 years. Huzzah! Wait, 15 years? Man, that’s a long time. There will also be a number of LRTs, BRTs, GO Transit upgrades, and subway extensions in that time. Finally, we can get our transit infrastructure out of the stone age. The only thing is they aren’t fully decided on where the money’s going to come from. Read all about it on Torontoist.
